LEARNING
We recognise the importance of complementing formal education
with practical application, and this is reflected in the extra-curricular
activities we offer.
Aspiring filmmakers can approach our Filmmaker-in-Residence,
a position that is periodically filled by various Southeast Asian award
winning and independent filmmakers. They serve as mentors and
organise skill-based workshops such as Filmmaking for Dungus,
which encourage students to realise their cinematic dreams. Upon
completion, many of these films will have the opportunity to be
screened alongside the works of other international and domestic
indie film-makers at our Nasi Bungkus Cinema events.
If you are looking to get a head start in your career, you can find
opportunities at our annual NGO fair, which will introduce you to
Malaysian and regional NGOs working on social and political issues in
Southeast Asia. Through this event, you are not only presented with
the opportunity to network with experts in the field, but can also apply
for internships and other learning positions that will help build your
resume and develop your skills.
